  1. Really love this make up!

  2. lily

    Cool photos! I have another question,I want to order something at sephora,at which step (there a 5,aren’t them?)can I enter these codes where you get free samples? :)

    • Amy

      When you’re entering your credit/shipping info, at the bottom there is a place for the codes. You can hit continue to see if the code works. Happy shopping! :)

  3. Omg is this going to become a trend? Just sporting random pearls everywhere?! It seems ridiculous now, but it’ll probably become super normal and casual xP

      Its not meant to be over the top runway and promotional pictures are usually about fantasy and Im guessing their inspiration was facial piercing judging by location of the pearls. Sometimes stuff like that become trends but usually its still tweaked a little for the real world

  4. This is just what I needed right now.. a reminder that there will be spring again :)

    The makeup looks very fresh and pretty, but ewwwww the pearls on the ears and face look like a disease

  6. Jane

    Hmmm… The flat pearls directly on the skin look a little cyst-like. I’m not sure about that. The nails and lip balm are intriguing.

    Spring/summer?! And I was just thinking yesterday that it was crazy that Macy’s already has the Christmas stuff out!

  8. Leah

    Have these photos been photoshopped? Those girls look like they have absolutely no pores!

    That’s so beautiful!

    Love the makeup but definitely not the pearls…at first I was like what the heck? dandruffs????

  11. Alyssa

    Gorgeous makeup look. A little heavy handed with the pearls though…

  12. malia

    a big fat NO to the stick ons. ewww. but yes! Love the cheeks and eyes, very fresh and pretty.

  13. Mimi

    So Pretty!!! My favorite collections are Spring/Summer. I like soft, feminine makeup instead of hard, dark stuff especially around the eye. I do like any kind of lipstick although I don’t like nude/beige as it drains the face of natural color and makes women look unwell. Beautiful skin, rosey cheeks and lips, and soft, clean eyes is a look that flatters women of all ages and ethnicities. Great for the office, weekends, daytime, and then just strengthen/deepen the color for evening.

    I saw the show on Chanel’s website. Haha those models look just like me except my piercings are real. And when I worked for Chanel they didn’t allow anything except one stud in each ear! Love the fresh clean look for the makeup.

    Love the blondes MU, but the crusty Robert Palmer hair? Blurg.

  16. The pearls are brilliant! Freja could not be more gorgeous.

  17. Rose

    The pearls are just meant to emphasize the theme of the spring/summer makeup trend which all has a pearl sheen to it…also the theme is an underwater fantasy and well…there are pearls in the ocean. Chanel is not trying to start a face pearl trend…it’s supposed to be artistic.

  18. I don’t like the pearls on the face personally, but the look is sweet, natural and cute! I’m loving the lips!

  19. nicci

    I can’t wait! :) especially for the glowing blush, sounds interesting

  20. I am way too distracted by the “pearly zits” to notice the makeup. And the ones on the ear remind me of the auricular therapy I did years ago (similar to acupuncture/acupressure). Why add things that detract from the beauty of the models and the makeup?

  21. Avatar of Joan Joan

    The stuck on pearls look a bit ridiculous. xD

  22. Katrina

    slick wet hair and pearl pircings….eeww…..

  23. Cath

    I want this to be my signature look!!! Still looking for that perfect blush and lipstick…
